    James Pendleton Harlan
    BIRTH 22 Jan 1822
    DEATH 10 Aug 1870 (aged 48)
    BURIAL: Cathey Cemetery
    Hampshire, Maury County, Tennessee, USA

    Died, at his residence in Maury County, on the 10th day of August James P. Harlan, an elder of the Christian Church at Cathey's Creek. His disease which was of several months' continuance was greatly aggravated, if not actually brought about by a severe cut on the ankle received from the sudden starting of his team while he was engaged in adjusting some portion of the machinery of his mowing machine. He endured his afflictions with a degree of fortitude and patience seldom witnessed, remaining cheerful through-out his sickness, and at last sank peacefully to rest in the blissful hope of a happy resurrection.
    He was among the first to advocate and put in practice the weekly meetings of the church of which he was a member. He never shrank from the performance of what he conceived to be his duties as a Christian, and his zeal and activity were instrumental no doubt in promoting the Christian Cause amongst his associates. He was an humble, earnest and faithful Christian, a charitable neighbor and good citizen. He leaves a widow and four small children, and many friends and brethren to mourn his loss but we sorrow not as those who have no hope.
